I love the simplicity of Thanksgiving. Food. Family. Friends. Blessings. That's it. No expectations of gifts or a large fuss- just relishing in all that you have around you.
I love welcoming people into our home to honor and bless them with a meal. To let them be served for all of the ways that they serve and honor us. To show them just how chock full o' thanks we really are for their presence in our lives.
|The "kids" table- New friends joined us this year. DeMorney, my|
brother's girlfriend, and Will, Adam's friend and student teacher.
|Adam was so excited about carving the turkey, but it had other plans. It was so tender it just pulled a part. Yum.|
|The good ole' boys.|
|Brothers. Enough said.|
|I love this picture. The Basset boys and the Mama who loves them behind the camera. Glad to catch this moment.|
|MC loves her uncles. They just might be her favorites.|
|It wouldn't be a Basset-Porter-Tigert function without the wine.|
|These salt and pepper shakers and scoops were brought from South Africa|
as wedding gifts for us almost 5 years ago.
|Reading Papa a night-night story.|
A very Happy Thanksgiving 2013- chock full o' love and a few nuts. Just how I like it.
